Front Porch Political Talk Episode 23: Questionable Stances

I have to admit, this wasn't one of our best episodes but I share it nonetheless. There are some areas that are more spin than substance but there are enough nuggets of goodness for folks.

There is no episode being recorded for 6/28 due to a last minute scheduling conflict. Enjoy the weekend off and we'll be back for a recording on July 4th!

Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #18: Love and Understanding

No comments:
One of the challenges of political discussions is the lack of understanding that one side has of the other. In this episode we are going to look at some articles that should help us better understand the stance on a number of issues. Whether we are talking about political opponents, activists or terrorists there is some level of rationale, misguided as it may be, behind their actions. This is not to say that we're headed for some kind of "kumbayah" moment at the end of the recording, rather the goal is to glean the method to their madness.

Front Porch Political Talk Episode 17: Setting the Stage

No comments:
The stage was set for a fun episode and I think we delivered on that promise. As usual we did not make it through all of the articles but we did have fun discussing the ones we got to.  I think one of the best aspects of our round-table is that the opinions shared cover a range of viewpoints.  This can be seen during our discussion regarding the Baltimore "protests".

No comments:
There are a lot of times when we can only guess at the intentions of others aren't exactly clear. In other cases, like those in the articles for this episode, the veil can thin or be lifted. We're going discuss these in this episode.

There has been an unexpected change for the podcast's presence in Second Life. We are getting more settled into our new home at Cheertopia as well as an outpost on the mainland in Ello. There have also been some delays on other initiatives as a more comprehensive plan is put in place for the show.

Front Porch Political Talk Episode 9: Forcing Their Opinions

No comments:
Another episode, another great conversation! We didn't agree on every issue and that's okay because we talked about the articles withot requiring everyone to be in lock-step. We spent a lot of time talking about Bitcoin and the regulation of that as well as how Planet Fitness might have caused some angst in its own customer base. Those weren't the only things on the agenda, so listen in to hear the whole show!

Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #9: Forcing Their Opinions

No comments:
When looking at the news there are times when it's painfully obvious that agendas and opinions are being pushed. In this episode we are focusing on articles that show this in a number of different ways.

There has been an unexpected change for the podcast's presence in Second Life. We say goodbye to Sunset River as the home of the Republican Party of SL and hello to a consolidated location on Cheertopia. Outside of SL we are also finalizing the options for folks to subscribe using either Patreon or Joyride. Articles for this episode:

It's time for another example of real headlines that just can't be made up. We have fun with these from time to time but need to keep in mind that they represent the insanity that can exist today.

Episode 361: More Poor Choices

No comments:
I am not going to make the same poor choice I have for the past two episodes and think, "it's late, I'll post this later." We talked about some interesting poor decisions that have been made, some of them more than once. There were also some interesting tangents taken during the conversation. I swear I'm going to forward my emails to Joesf at some point in the future!

Articles for Episode 361: More Poor Choices

No comments:
I'll admit it, anyone can make poor choices. When you're in the political "eye" those bad ideas can and will come back to haunt you. In this episode we're going to look at some recent decisions that will be regretted… in some cases sooner rather than later! We also talked about these back in June of this year with Episode 338 (Poor Choices).

As mentioned on the show, we're going to be pushing our Facebook page more this year. We are also asking folks to support us by listening to the show on Red State Talk Radio or Stitcher.com. Articles for this episode:

Episode 349: Some People Need Help

No comments:
In contrast to last week's episode, this one hit on all cylinders and we were able to have a good, solid discussion about the various connotations to "needing help." These ranged from the "bless their heart" concept to legislative action to areas that truly do need a considered level of assistance.

We even started to talk about an article that was in the "extra reading" list (sorry about that, I couldn't continue on the nudist camp conversation) and brought up a local primary election for me that had me picking based on some very limited information.

Articles for Episode 349: Some People Need Help

No comments:
There are different connotations of the phrase, "need help." In this episode we're going to explore a few of those. We've got articles looking at outrageous statements, strange mandates and areas where assistance is truly needed. Keeping with the changes there's no "fun" opening article, things are too important this week and the absurd can sometimes get in the way.

Episode 347: Jumping the Shark

No comments:
We managed to talk about jumping the shark without doing so ourselves (unless you count the madlibs, I don't). It was fun but if you're Obama-sensitive you might want to turn away. There are a lot of interesting nuggets, including mentioning of an NPR story about the EU's regulation on vacuum cleaners and Happy Days.

For those of you who missed the MadLib during the recording, here are the results:
A recent scary poll shows that the majority of people are terrified of public governing.  They would rather walk across burning jacobites or swim in goat-infested waters than give a speech in front of nuns.  This hearty fear can be overcome in five easy voters:
1. Organize all of your gym teachers on a piece of plank.
2. Remember to start your speech with a funny Senator.
3. When speaking, look your audience straight in the feet and speak in a strong and stupid voice.
4. Be simple.  Never use damaged words that are over the audiences eyes.
5. Always keep a pitcher of mercury next to you, in case your shin goes dry.

Articles for Episode 347: Jumping the Shark

No comments:
The concept of Jumping the Shark is used when a production does something extraordinary in order to attract attention but instead signals its decline. The phrase came from the Happy Days episode in which Fonzie literally jumped a shark in a stunt.

These days, the term applies to almost anything and tonight we're going to look at politicians that have been doing an excellent job at it.
